Great coverage in Nursing Times for Ellen Nicholson, who was selected earlier this year as the Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) for South West Wiltshire:

"When you are actually in nursing in primary care, you can treat the health side things that you see in people but you can't go much further and there's some awful things that you actually see, some people's social circumstances, problems with education, problems with housing, and I think it awoke the desire to actually want to do something about those as well," she said.
